What about lubricated condoms? The lubrication on the condom is a liquid and it might be possible to create an explosive liquid form to be applied to what appears to be a condom but in reality is the secondary component that activates in a few hours after it melts. I don't know about you guys but I don't want to die due to a pack of clevely disquised Trojans. Your thoughts?

I wonder if all you people that are against banning liquids on planes would be of the same opinion if the terrorists weren't stopped and the planes did go down?
When 911 happened, airport security increased to a critical level, but people didn't complain. They were happy to comply, only because of the reality of such risks. Only because 1000's of people died, and they didn't want to be the next. There was a global fear, a fear of real danger.
Everyone is too complacent now and angry because they forget that it could be the guy next to them, drinking a bottle of water, that suddenly explodes in their face. Do we need these actual terrorist events to occur to be reminded of the outcomes?
Its when the officials do their job successfully and stop a terror event, that people wish to bash their decisions?
I don't blame the airlines for imposing these rules. Would you want to be held responsible when the CRUD hits the fan?
Sure, it could be a government tactic, but what are you gonna do about it? Prove it and maybe you'd have a leg to stand on. Until then, your just speculating. Speculating against the real risk of terror.
Remember jaws the movie? Lets open the beach, its in the public's interest, what could go wrong?

"we buy semi-automatics they buy fully automatics"
So your saying there is no threat?
All this is a joke?
First a 7 mile high structure on the moon and now you say the US gov is having a joke with us, even though it was the UK who intercepted the terrorists!
And all the while I suppose there is no threat from extremists, its all lies.
Those millions of people in the middle east who want death to the infadels (you and me) is all BS?
Sorry John, but from here on in, I discredit everything you say!
